King Tubby the Dub Master, who's output was as prolific as it is sought after and who's presence is surely missed.We would like to take you on another dub excursion. This time through some essential cuts made for the Producer / DJ Tappa Zukie. King Tubby always added something a little special to the tracks he worked on. Producers would often bring their already tracks to his home studio at 18 Drummlie Avenue, in the Kingston district of Waterhouse.

The second release for new revival label Blood & Fire, again featuring some vintage Bunny Lee productions, this time dub instrumentals from the years 1975/9. All the tracks were mixed at King Tubby's studio in Kingston, either by the late dubmaster himself or one of three engineers who graduated in turn from Tubby's academy of dub on Drumlie Avenue with flying colours. Dub was then exploring brave new frontiers, soon reaching unparalleled heights of innovation and execution. Whilst its origins have recently been brought into question by certain elements of the reggae press, few would dispute that King Tubby was at the heart of its development.

Reggae / Dub

There's a heady brew of talent going on here – Phillip Smart at the mixing deck, The Aggrovators providing the rhythms, and Bunny Lee mixing the whole thing down at King Tubby's – all for a massive serving of echo-heavy Jamaican dub from the 70s! The tracks here are awash in cool instrumental touches – lots of organ lines from Jackie Mittoo and Winston Wright, bubbling basslines from Robbie Shakespeare and Aston Barrett, and sweet riffing guitar from Chinna Smith and Alva Lewis – but the special focus here is on the way that Smart can capture all these sounds individually, with a crispness that points the way towards the digital dub generation, and which gives a really deep sense of texture to the final dubs. CD features four more bonus tracks too!

King Tubby's studio and Channel One – two of the great Jamaican studios that produced so many of the great reggae rhythms in Kingston – find themselves here battling for the trophy. Bunny Lee threw rhythms over to Channel One, which had enlisted the great DJ Jah Stitch to return the fire. So sit back and enjoy two great institutions of the reggae sound, battling it out for supremacy. The winner? That's for the listener to decide. But in this Dub Soundclash there is no loser. CD includes six bonus tracks.

Dangerous Dub is a 1981 collaboration album between King Tubby and Roots Radics. For fans of the reggae subsidiary of dub, this gets deep into version and then some. This is taken from the 2001 reissue CD from Greensleeves.

If you were going to make some dub music, the place to have it mixed was King Tubby's, with King Tubby and Scientist at the controls. And that's exactly what Jah Thomas did with these cuts originally recorded at Channel One with the superb Roots Radics (and the open spaces of dub show just how good and tight they were).

Bunny Lee and King Tubby are synonymous with Dub Reggae. Bunny Lee may not have been the first producer for whom Tubby remixed, but theirs was certainly the most fruitful partnership, with literally hundreds of singles released in the mid to late 70's. This compilation has the edge for me over other compilations featuring Bunny Lee/King Tubby material (like the 3-CD "Father Of Dub" boxset), because within it are four complete original seventies albums. True, the tracklistings are scattered about a bit, but with a little research you can compile the LPs "The Roots Of Dub", "Dub From The Roots" (both on CD 1), "Cookin" by Tommy McCook & The Aggrovators (12 tracks on CD 2) and "Showcase Vol.3" by Jackie Mittoo (first 10 tracks on CD 3). The rest adds up to another 2CDs worth of assorted tracks - great value.

A collaboration between dub mixmaster/studio whiz King Tubby and dancehall tough Jah Screw, Dangerous Dub is a ten-track collection of some of the heaviest roots dub around. The two spent nights mixing tracks in King Tubby's studio located in the perilous, crime-rife ghetto of West Kingston – hence the name Dangerous Dub. Pounding, mind-blowing basslines and supple guitar tracks are provided by studio mainstays Flabba Holt and Bingy Bunny, both of whom appear on countless reggae and dub recordings. They provide a nice balance to the rat-a-tat ratcheting sounds King Tubby is famous for. The best cut by far is "Hungry Belly Dub," a remake of the classic reggae standard "Bandulo." Also featuring the track "London Bridge Special," Dangerous Dub is a great introduction to dub at its finest. ~Allmusic

Lots of previously unreleased music from the seventies has emerged in recent years including recordings apparently retrieved from King Tubby's studio. Now here's a double-cd set from London-based Charm-Jet Star entitled "The King Tubby Tapes" featuring Horace Andy's minimal, proto-dancehall set "Pure Ranking" on CD1 and the accompanying dubs from Tubbys priceless archive on CD2. However, if you're looking for the great Tubb's signature sounds you won't find them here. The dubs gathered on disc two are mixed by one of King Tubby's apprentices, most likely Prince Jammy. On the production side of things the credits go to King Tubby, Brad Osborne and Horace Andy himself.

On the one hand, anyone could be forgiven for wondering if yet one more collection of dub mixes by the late, great King Tubby is really needed. It's not like his stuff is hard to find. On the other hand, anyone could be forgiven for smacking someone in the head who asks such a fool question and shrieking "Of course it is!" It's not like it's possible to get too much Tubby. Universally regarded as the greatest of the first-generation dub producers, King Tubby was a true virtuoso of the mixing desk, a man who made it his business to know everything there was to know about sound manipulation, and who applied his knowledge with a combination of musical taste and sonic adventurousness that has yet to be matched.
